    Search your system for a *.dbx file. Not mbx. Also you can also see where these files are being store and either move or copy them to other places by clicking Tools> Options >click Maintenance (tab) >click Store Folder. It will show you where these files are. It should look something like this :C:\DocumentsandSettings\<|username|>\LocalSettings\Application Data\Identities\{09F4C0-1D5-4F-0E-A3C75}\Microsoft\OutlookExpress

    I searched for *.dbx and it did not find anything.

    I looked under documents and settings/my user/application data/microsoft and there was no outlook express folder, just outlook, which I uninstalled

    Open outlook express. Go to tools\options\maintenance\store folder. Look in there & it will tell you where they are stored.
